The MCe remote is supported by Media Portal natively, so most probably, you won't have any problems.
The blaster part (to control other devices like set-top boxes) is also supported, but that takes some more work.

    Also, if you get the choice, go for the European 2005 version. It has the fou extra colour teletext buttons down the bottom and these are used as shortcut keys to make MP a LOT easier to use.

    If you have XP PRO SP2 or MCE, it should work straight out of the "box". If you have XP Home, you'll need to play withsome extra files, but it's not too hard.

    Where's a good place to buy this remote? I've looked all over the interweb but usually they don't specify what model they are... Should I get one of the ones listed on Newegg or from somewhere else? See link...

    I see what you mean now. Too bad that site doesn't ship internationally :-(. I'll keep looking and post any findings I get here for others.

    I bought the european version of the MS media center remote. the problem is i cant get it to work. It works on my gaming machine with service pack 2 installed, but i cant install SP2 on my media machine. You said it was possible to get this to work with a XP pro version without service pack 2. How can i do this? thanks

    Thanks. Your screenshot is showing the "TVGuide", the mentioned "MiniEPG" appears, if you press "enter" or "OK" during Live-TV. But you're right, the channel arrow and PIP button are not reachable by mouse, something insibile is overlapping them and preventing focus. I'll fix that. Anyway, I'll provide a new installer to you soon...

    It is certainly worth a try. I had given up and laid this idea to rest. I shall try at the weekend, thank you.
